Fish Fry

Fish fry is one of the simplest method or way to cook fish. My Mom always fries fish in the dosa pan(kal) with generous amount of oil. I have chosen the less greasy version of using a nonstick pan with 1 to 2 tsps of oil, works fine for me. The trick to get a good fish fry without being dried out on the inside is to fry the fish in medium to medium high heat. If fried for a long time in low heat, the fish tends to become dry.
Baking is another option, but it depends on the variety of fish, I do that for salmon as here.


Ingredients:
Fish steaks or fillets(8 pieces)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp fennel /sombu powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp chopped garlic
salt as required


Method:

Clean and wash the fish fillets. 
Add the chilli powder, fenel powder, turmeric, garlic, and salt and mix well to coat.
Marinate for atleast 15 mins.
Take non stick pan, add about 2 -3 tsps of oil.
Fry the fish in batches under medium heat until crisp and brown on both sides.
Remove and place in the paper towel to drain excess oil.

Enjoy with white rice and rasam my favorite combination.
